Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between proofreading and editing?
Proofreading is usually the final step before publication, and involves correction of small details like missing commas or misspelled words. It is the final touch up on an otherwise finished transcript or document.
Editing includes correcting sentence structure and word choice, among other errors. A document in need of editing is not usually in its final draft yet.
How quickly can you proofread a document?
A standard job of up to 25 pages, single-spaced, will be completed within 7 days. If you need it sooner, a rush fee will apply. See my Services & Rates page for pricing.
What if I'm not happy with your work?
For first-time clients, I will be happy to proofread up to 10 pages for free, so you can decide if you want to use my services. If you notice errors that I have missed, please let me know and I will find a way to remedy the situation.
I do my best to take individual preferences into account. If you have a specific style guide that you prefer, please let me know when submitting your document.
I need someone to help me with my academic assignment. Is that cheating?
As a former university instructor, I am well versed in the concepts of plagiarism and academic honesty. I pride myself on providing suggestions and guidance without crossing the line into rewriting your work. I am not an essay-writing service.
